Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying to configure my internet connection in Red Hat Linux version 9.0 and kernel 2.4.20-8. I have partitioned my hard drive and one partition has Windows XP in it whereas the other has RH Linux 9.0. I have pppoe broadband internet connection with dhcp settings in Windows XP and it's working fine. My Windows XP Device Manager indicates that the network card is RTL8139 PCI Ethernet.
However /etc/sysconfig/hwconf in Linux is not detecting the card. I find unknown vendor | unknown device mentioned in the file. I guess RH 9.0 is supposed to automatically detect the internet connection settings.
Can someone indicate to me the reason why the card is not detected?
It's a desktop machine. Anyway isn't Red Hat Linux 9 supposed to detect network card automatically? I tried to load 8139too.c driver and yet when I did a modprobe it indicated to me that device interface is not detected.
As suggested by you, I have installed Fedora Core 5 on my system. However it's not recognising my serial 3 button Logitec mouse. At the same time, when I try connecting to internet, it's not connecting. Is there any configuration that I must do after installation or the OS should detect these automatically.
